COLLECTED PHOBIAS 6

COLLECTED PHOBIAS manuscript of short stories by Granny Annie
(Written as bedtime stories for my children in the 80's.  This one was my daughter's favorite.)

SCHOOL GLUE

Clyde entered his adolescence with fear and trembling.  He gazed intently at the small red and purple protrusions that began to appear on his face, back and arms.  He looked at his older brother, his cousins, his parents and knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that he was to follow family tradition and he would be eaten up with acne all of his adult life.

It was quite by accident that Clyde discovered the miracle results produced by rubbing school glue on newly forming pimples.  Knowing his mother would not approve, Clyde kept this wonderful secret to himself.  He happily covered himself with the school glue on a daily basis.

All of the family marveled at the difference between Clyde and his brother.  "Aren't you glad that Clyde has escaped the dreaded family acne problem?"

It was a quite summer afternoon when, seated by the local swimming pool, Clyde's face began to swell, his eyes bulge, and quite unexpectedly the top of his head burst as gobs of pus erupted and spewed over the boy.

  1. Did they have nightmares? The ending was quite a surprise but funny too. It was great you should have them published Annie.

  2. Thanks Winifred. I am putting them here so my children can refresh their memories and my grandchildren can read them. Both of my children are successful in their lives and wonderful parents. Neither are serial killers:-)

  3. Dang that might give me nightmares. Seriously though I use to read horror comic books when I was younger and they were in the same vein.

    1. I learned that kids liked scary stories as much as gross fart stories.
